Birds of a Feather


Hello Dear Readers, Dot and Mae love birds. They love to watch them fly about, so busy building nests and looking for bugs to eat. There are so many different kinds of birds, too. They come in all different sizes and colors – some of them sing such lovely songs! Spring is great time for bird watching. Dot and Mae always look for a Robin in March or April – that means that Spring has arrived! Hurray! Continue reading

Happy Flower Girls


Dot and Mae found these lovely little flower girls and they were so lovely and charming they just had to share them with you.

She is a very friendly troll and Dot and Mae go to visit her whenever they have time. Elsa likes to be very active and her favorite sport is tennis, which she has taught Dot and Mae to play. Dot and Mae are not too bad at playing tennis, but Elsa plays them two against one and she can always win if she wants to, but she goes easy on Dot and Mae because she knows they are just beginners. Perhaps you’ve noticed that Elsa doesn’t wear any clothes? That’s just how her troll culture is – clothes are optional, and when Elsa plays tennis, she feels that the clothes just get in the way. (She has a cute belly button though, doesn’t she!

Dot and Mae were taking a walk this morning, and while returning home carrying a small basket of cinnamon rolls that they were going to eat for breakfast, they ran into the chicken couple who live on another shelf in the china cupboard.
